If I Am Unable To Return To The Type Of Work I Did Before I Was Injured, What Happens?

You may also be entitled to vocational rehabilitation assistance to help you find suitable alternative employment. The goal of this assistance is to ensure that you return to work in a job that is both safe, given your physical capacities, and appropriate to your educational and employment background.
